MILLBURY, Ohio — Bricks from an Ohio school destroyed by a tornado earlier this month are being sold to help build a new school.
The fundraiser began Thursday at Lake High School near Toledo in northwest Ohio. Nearly 450 bricks were sold for $10 apiece, raising almost $4,500 for a rebuilding fund.
Lake sophomore Haley Grames says buying a brick means taking a bit of a memory home.
The sale will continue on Friday.
The high school was directly in the path of the June 5 tornado, which wiped out the cafeteria, gymnasium and several classrooms.
In the fall, students will take their classes at Owens Community College in suburban Toledo. A new school won’t be ready before January 2012.
The tornado also killed six people in the area.
